The Ride of a Lifetime

Robert Allen Iger

Bob Iger is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of all time. He became CEO of The Walt Disney Company in 2005, when the company was struggling to keep up with technological advances in an increasingly competitive landscape. In this book, Bob recounts how he turned Disney around to become one of the most respected media companies. Readers come to learn how the acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox came to fruition and get a glimpse into his friendship with Steve Jobs. Perhaps most importantly, Bob provides insight into his "decency-over-dollars approach" to every project he pursued. I loved reading this book and would recommend it to everyone as it is a quick read with lots of great advice about leadership and taking risks.
